Faux Metal - Artistic Etchings



I cased this card from Carrie Gaskin. I changed up the ribbon but kept the layout and colours the same!! I just loved her "metal tower" idea with the faux metal technique. I was excited to show it off to my club memebers this month.

Faux Metal Technique: Press your Versamark pad onto a piece of card stock (i used basic gray) and emboss with the same color (i used silver embossing powder). Do this three times to build it up. Ink your stamp in Versamark and after the third coating while the embossing powder is still hot carefully press your stamp into the melted powder to imprint the image.
